Last week, a developmental talent had tested positive for COVID-19 following which the company immediately conducted widespread testing of all individuals present on-site.
Despite the “scary place” the Performance Center has become of late, WWE still plans to hold television tapings on Friday and Saturday.
According to Fightful, WWE sent a message to NXT Superstars about the latest COVID-19 testing ahead of Friday’s tapings.
The talents were instructed to be at the world-class training facility by 10:30 AM and those who had taken a drive-thru testing the day before weren’t required to take a second one.
“Per Vince, ALL Talent are needed for TV on Friday & Saturday. Please go to PC by 10:30 AM TODAY for drive-through COVID testing. if you took test yesterday, you don’t need to today. If you are in high level storyline, you will be off camera. Thanks. **IMPORTANT: after test, you will need to remain ISOLATED AND QUARANTINED until after the TV tapings.”
Only the developmental talents will be representing the live crowd at the upcoming tapings. The presence of friends and family at the Performance Center is completely out of the picture now.
